The swanky Georgetown neighborhood serves as the perfect one-stop destination for visitors. Live the American dream, by shopping the town’s 150 fashion specialty stores, which include local boutiques and international brands. Georgetown’s dining options are as varied as the embassies nearby – dig in at Italian ristorantes, American steakhouses and Vietnamese eateries for around-the-world indulgences. But beyond the chic shops, delectable restaurants and lively nightlife, Georgetown is, at its core, one of the oldest and best-preserved neighborhoods in the United States. Founded in 1751, the area is a nationally designated historic district; Thomas Jefferson, Francis Scott Key and John F. Kennedy have all called Georgetown home. A simple walk reveals charming Federal architecture, historic brick houses, cobblestone streets and multi million-dollar mansions that date back to the mid-1700s.
Washington's numerous historic landmarks, museums, cultural attractions and sports venues are easily accessible. Below you will find just a few of our favorite Georgetown and DC attractions.
